    Wendell Carter Jr., the 6-10 power forward from Pace (GA) Academy, was named the McDonald’s All-American Morgan Wootten Player of the year on Tuesday.

    Carter, a Duke commit, will compete for the East Team in the 2017 McDonald’s All-American Game later this month. “I was shocked when I got the news,” he told ESPN. “There are so many talented and flashy players in the game.”

    The Wootten award goes to the student-athlete who best exemplifies the completeness of outstanding character, leadership, and academics. “At the moment, I will cherish this award,” he said. “It will motivate me now, even more, when I move on to Duke.”
